All-American III, Family Albums, Signed to Ed Limato
[Signed, Ex Libris Ed Limato] Weber, Bruce and Bush, Nan. (ed.) All-American III, Family Albums. Limited Edition of 4,000 copies. 2003. Softcover in good plus condition. Book is signed, “For Ed Limato, Bruce Weber, 2003.” It is stamped "From the Library of Edward F. Limato, Heather House" on the flyleaf.
The image on the cover suggests Bear Pond or Chop Suey, but that is only one aspect of Bruce Weber’s diverse and enchanting world. This third All-American installment focuses on the family in its various permutations. There is Weber-shot photo spread of a frolicking baby elephant and its parents. That is followed by photographs of the Kennedy clan, circa Camelot, unpublished until this book. There is also much more, including vintage society portraits from Lake Forest, and a year with teenagers, etc.
“[My wife] Nan knows how much I’ve always wanted an elephant in my life. Every day when I come home from photographing them she expects to see one trailing behind.”
